Planning a honeymoon out of the country, we can plan a tasting for wine you might find on the menu at your destination.
All you need to do is decide what you're wearing, who is in the wedding party, and invite guests.

Pét Nat, short for Pétillant Naturel, is French for “natural sparkling.”
This method of making sparkling wine pre-dates the traditional champagne method,
where one takes a fully fermented dry wine and adds yeast and sugar to cause
a secondary fermentation. Instead, the Pétillant Naturel method transfers wine
that is still in its first fermentation to the bottle. This allows the native yeast
to continue fermentation within the bottle and produce carbon dioxide
which creates the delicious bubbles we all love.
Passion fruit and Bing cherry come off the nose of this wine with a distinctive,
wet gravel minerality. As you look at the wine in your glass it continues to dance
and open up to its more complex flavors and aromatics. The palate on this wine evokes
a traditional Champagne in weight and fineness of bubbles;
however the easy-drinking, fruit forward youth of the wine makes it very quaffable.
